About Advent

Advent

From Latin adventus (“coming to”), following the Greek paraousia.

The word Advent means coming or arrival. It is the period leading up to Christmas, and the start of the Christian calendar. It is a period of waiting, waiting with Israel for the Messiah, reading the prophecies of his arrival, waiting with the world for Messiah’s return, watching and praying.

At Advent the church celebrates God’s coming into the world in the incarnation, and with all creation groans, awaiting God-dwelling-with-us.

The Advent Project is designed to help us grow patient hearts as we wait for God’s coming. More information about advent is available here.
